Good one , yes he tries confusing us with the 27, when 25 is the number. Then the 5 dollars out. For the train one, its possible that if he enters the train from the west it goes south and its a double track, so then when he wants to go to the north he enters from east, time doesn't matter. I don't think this is right but o well.

Try this one on....

A pregnant woman is naming her child. She already has 6 children, named: Dominic, Regis, Milly, Fawn, Sophia, and Lana. What name will she choose for the child she is carrying? Jessie, Katlyn, Tilly, or Abigail? And why?

I'd say Jessie, as it can be used for either sex, and typically the other three names are feminine. So, if she doesn't know the sex before the birth, she can pick "Jessie" and be safe.

I found this site to do some name research, and thought I'd share as I spent a lot of time just playing around there, somebody else may like to know the origin of a name.

Nope, nothing to do with the sex of the child...


Here's a BIG hint....

Nope, your post was 8 minutes after Duzey's answer...so Duzey got the points...
A couple minutes, and I could assume replying at the same time, but not 8 minutes....

But, here's another...

It's an English word where the first 2 letters indicate a man, the first 3 letters indicate a woman, the first 4 indicate a great man, and the entire word...a great woman. What's the word?


EDIT: Riddle crowd is a little groggy this morning???

ok, got one off my big brother: You are given 5 bags. There are 10 beads in each of the bags. In four of the bags, the beads each weigh 10 kilograms. In the remaining bag, each bead weighs only 9 kilograms. All the bags and beads look identical. You must find out which bag has the lighter beads. The problem is that all the bags look identical and all the beads look identical. You can use a scale, but it has to be a single-tray scale, not a two-tray balance scale. Also, you may use the scale only once. How can you find out which bag has the lighter beads?
I didnt figure it out, its impossible!!! he told me though

Take one bead from the first bag, two from the second, three from the third and so on. After you have taken the correct amount from each bag, weigh the beads you have removed. This would be 15 beads which should equal 150 kg if they were all 10kg.

The difference between 150kg and the weight of the beads will let you know what bag had the 9kg beads since you took one bead for each bag "number". If the total weight of all of the beads is 149kg, you know the first bag has the 9kg beads since you only took one bead from the bag. If the weight of all of the beads is 148kg, then you know it is the second bag and so on.

What do I win?
